- FALSE WIDOW ENQUIRIES - please see our comprehensive pages on False Widow Spiders - FAQs and False Widow Spiders
- There are photographs to compare with any spiders you think may be a False Widow, as well as detailed information on their distribution and habits and bite. (Please do not be scared by recent coverage in the media, much of which is misleading and plainly wrong!)
- For other common and harmless species that you can find in and around your home and garden, please check the section on our Main page Some Common British Species - click on the photos for more information and pictures.
(Please note that the BAS cannot always offer advice or identification help for non-British species. If your enquiry is regarding an arachnid outside of the UK, then please also refer to our Arachnological links page for a Society / reference source relevant to the respective country. Of course, we shall still try to assist where there is no such local contact.)
NOTE: Because of the large amount of spam e-mails the Society receives, the e-mail addresses have been disguised - to e-mail please change 'AT' to '@'
